Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crook Log

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would much rather use a local conveyancing solicitor in Crook Log?

You should check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel solicitors should you want the "fee-free" offer. Contact the lender to ask if they make available a monetary alternative.

I am helping my step-mother sell her property in Crook Log. Will the conveyancing solicitor commission the energy assessment or it is for the owner to coordinate?

Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments became a required component of moving house. An energy assessment needs to be to hand prior to the property being marketed. This is not something that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are instructing a Crook Log conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with long established local assessors

I'm in the throws of viewing apartments in Crook Log and I am about to put in an offer. Is it advisable to have my conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a mortgage with HSBC.

It would be sensible to instigate your search sooner rather than later.

How does conveyancing in Crook Log differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Crook Log contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Crook Log tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Crook Log or who has acted in the same development.
